Whether you're thinking about buying a car or leasing a car, both scenarios come with their own set of considerations involving upfront costs, car insurance costs, road tax costs, and maintenance costs. Depending on your financial situation and considerations, both scenarios have pros and cons. Find out which car ownership model works best for you.
As a car buyer, things can definitely feel a little bit jaded at this current juncture, where EVS can feel a little bit too far out of our reach financially, while ICE options may feel a little too stifled in order to meet emission and fuel economy standards. However, it's not all doom and gloom for the car buying market. Here are some of the most interesting cars that have been released this year that are well worth your consideration.
While fuel economy, zero emissions, and sustainability have always been the main selling point of electric cars, there are also some other additional benefits of owning an electric car that don’t actually have much to do with pump prices. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Buying a brand new car without help or prior experience can seem like a pretty daunting task. In Singapore especially, the sheer number of new car options make the task even more difficult. You not only have to consider your budget, but also brand, image, practicality, and your preference for design. To offer more context to this topic, here are some possible scenarios that the average Singaporean might encounter.
Buying a practical car for the family isn't just about buying the biggest car in terms of dimensions.

Often labelled as a supermini - with “super” referring to its pint-sized stature rather than sporting credentials, the Suzuki Swift commenced production in 2004, but its complex history (defined by the Suzuki Cultus) dating way back to 1983 proved that its platform was used to engineer configurations to suit every market imaginable. Paris Motor Show in 2004 served as the event to introduce the Swift as a “sporty” subcompact, away from its previous Cultus-based predecessor. It achieved a respectable four out of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test, which was a major selling point given its compact sizing and “featherweight” one tonne curb weight.
The Lexus GS might have ceased production in August 2020, but it had left a positive impression for those who had the chance to experience one since its inception in 1993. It slots in nicely between the compact executive IS sedan and larger, flagship LS model and was designed as a performance sedan to compete with midsize luxury cars like the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E Class. The first generation GS was designed by Italdesign Giugiaro, a firm founded by famed designer Giorgetto Guigiaro, the man responsible for the stunning silhouettes including the Alfa Romeo 159 and Maserati Quattroporte.
Should I take a Car Loan in Singapore? - Interest rates have been on the rise, and higher interest rates will definitely have an impact on your finances when paying for a car, with higher loan repayments and monthly payments.

Will a larger loan amount get amplified by higher interest rates? We explore the pros and cons of taking a car loan in Singapore.

People purchase property with the expectation that its value will increase over time. However, this does not apply to cars.

With greater focus placed onto passenger comfort and optimisation of space, small cars are really not that small like before. The previous Honda Freed had proven that even with Jazz underpinnings, a slightly lengthened and taller car could cater to those who needed to seat more than five, while not looking too utilitarian, albeit a little boxy. The 2016 Freed follows a similar formula. Just like the previous car, a box shape gives the most when it comes to space. But Honda has definitely raised the bar with more dynamic styling cues, and length-wise, the car has grown 50mm longer, meaning more interior space.
The MPV is the family time car, and perhaps also spells the end of the dream performance car aspirations for the family man. Fortunately, there is a consolation in all this. Current day MPVs do have quite a number of creature spoils to satisfy the need for something special on the road.
